By YHH Staff , 06/30/21, 5:15PM CDT


The final day of Mini-Games sets the stage for the ultimate showdowns on Thursday.

Mini-Games come to a close after 36 rounds

Through three days and 36 Mini-Games, the time has come to play out the final day of this year's Combine. 

The overall standings were tabulated after the final contests on Wednesday afternoon, and included points for various off-ice activities in addition to the teams' exploits on the frozen stage. The teams earned extra points from dodgeball, kickball, hockey jeopardy, trivia, football, and more, such as winning the cleanest locker room at the end of the day.

The schedule for Thursday's games is posted below. 

But first, a breakdown of Wednesday's on-ice action. 

After an unbeatable start to the Combine, Minor White caught Minor Gold in the Mini-Games standings, with both teams finishing with identical 6-3 records. Edina products Amir Chebaclo and Freddie Schneider combined for 12 points to lead Minor Gold, with Chebaclo's four goals, three assists, and seven points ranking as tops in the Minor Division. Minor White's Matthew Johnson, William O'Neill, and Easton Monahan all concluded the Mini-Games with four points each. 

Across the aisle in the Major Division, White maintained its stretch of dominance, ending the Mini-Games portion of the Combine with a record of 8-1 while outscoring its opponents 23-8. Jacob Kvasnicka paces the division-leading Major White with two goals and six points, tied with Major Gold's Zachary Markwell. Markwell has three goals and three assists thus far.
